This has got to be one of the cutest and most adorable animations I have ever seen!

This animation has all the right ingredients to make it work. Gorgeous graphics, great storyline, and superb character design.

The title is Danger Planet and here’s what its about:

“During a routine scan on a distant planet, a young space scout finds romance with a female pilot. But when peril strikes the two star-crossed explorers, he must face what lurks in the darkness of the planet to rescue the girl.”

The animated short was created by students at Southern Adventist University in Tennessee. This 4 minute student animation was finished primarily in a summer after over a year of preproduction, and the result is fantastic!
